Yes, I meant to suggest that while we think of Nikon USA as part of Nikon (or Canon USA as part of Canon), for CIPA reporting purposes "selling" it to the regional affiliate is counted as distribution. Monies get shifted around even if the cameras stay in the same place (or are simply transferred from one warehouse to another.)
